I guess I should have said let's start at 2pm, but I didn't think we would be capable of doing this in 3 hours. But we made short work of this hill and got back to the very warm fire in the hotel lounge. All in all it was a fun walk, in a twisted kind of fun way. Sadly my powers to deliver sunshine while ON the hill failed, but I'll keep working on my skills.
Only took 4 pics during our 3 hours up the hill. Out of my 130 munros to date, Meall Ghaordaidh and Ben Vane are the only 2 that I don't have a summit pic of.

I left the waterproof trousers in the car citing "lightweight wins"'......once the rain blasting came it was a bit of a "whoops" moment. Shame you didn't get a picture of the "rain"
Nice pint at the Falls of Dochart; would be a decent place to do a WalkHighlands takeover/meet......

I was out on my bike without waterproofs and enjoyed getting soaked (mind you, that was only a wee jaunt to the local supermarket and back).
